to politics. we are here to find out from katrina how we're going to save the world with barack obama. let's start there. [laughter] >> i do not know how you learned by worked at national lampoon. saving the world. let me begin by saying how low they must be to go that low in new orleans. i would not put in the same sentence president obama and saving the world. it is very much about movements and the power in our history to bring about a fundamental change. you do need people inside, political leaders inside. it captures the imagination of the nation. through the turbulent history, it has been movement and the power of movements. franklin roosevelt was moved by later movements. lyndon johnson had the civil rights movement. i think we begin with that. this book comes out at a moment when the country sees the power and possibility of occupy, 99%, and how that has shifted. it is still evolving. it has shifted the center of political gravity of our dialogue. the issue has been off the radar for so long. >> roosevelt surfed and harnessed those movements. he used them to get legislation passed

that something is about politics. they released right before obama was set to give a speech on immigration the white house said oh no, no, we're not worried about that. it wasn't political. but it appears that obama backed off his specific proposals and is going with a bipartisan group that the bipartisan group obviously did that to head off the president to give some credit to the republicans but then why did the democrats play along with that? >> it looks like reviewing a scooby doo. they did this and they did this and they did this. it's framework. it's not legislation. it's not a bill. they got together and discussed things. then you see this outlier of marco rubio. everyone is trying to stake their ground right now where they want to be in immigration. the president is saying if you don't pass anything, you're going to get me. it's the president that we haven't seen other than as a campaigner. >> cenk: paul, what do you think? is this going to work? are republicans going to get an advantage here or be able to neutralize the advantage that democrats have with the latinos by jumping ahe
